6:18 am
off this afternoon bringing us partly cloudy skies kind of a mix of sun and clouds and temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s. so definitely milder day across the bay area. high pressure is the nam of the game is building. it's a flat ridge so it's bringing us some high clouds. even through the afternoon, we are staying dry. the low it is not coming anywhere near the bay area. so pinpoint forecast for later on today, temperatures mostly upper 50s to low 60s. 62 in mountain view. 60 san mateo. 56 in pacifica. east bay numbers once again you can see these temperatures are more mild today than yesterday. 59 walnut creek. 60 danville and san ramon and a similar story in the north bay, 60 in sonoma. the biggest change is just that we're not changing. we're staying dry and mild for the next several days through the workweek. today and wednesday, we're look at partly cloudy skies and then
6:19 am
saturday, sunday those temperatures are getting above average for this time of the year reaching near 67 degrees on saturday inland under mostly sunny skies. the only thing we could be dealing with is a little bit of morning and night fog especially tule fog because the ground is still wet so other than that we have some dry weather over the next several days on into the weekend. back to you. >> thank you. this morning, engineers and geologists are taking another look at the stability of a hillside in san francisco. several huge boulders crushed a parked car yesterday morning. this is near the intersection of lombard and montgomery on telegraph hill. some of the people living in nearby condos were evacuated for a few hours for their safety. and tenants in all but one condo unit have been allowed to return. it's unclear if the city or property owners should have been maintaining the hillside. an intense rescue in the snow caught on camera up in washington state. friends quickly saving a snowmobiler caught in an

tensions between 49ers and new york giants fans turned violent in san jose after the 9ers lost. fans captured a street brawl downtown showing a group of men in 9ers jerseys punching, kicking, knocking others to the ground. they had been watching the game at 4th street pizza. by the time the police arrived, crowd dispersed. future of the stadium in the santa clara for the 49ers will be in court. opponents have been collecting signatures and now they have enough to put the issue back before santa clara city voters. but the san jose "mercury news" reports the santa clara stadium authority is now ready to block that referendum saying the people have already voted. a 3.9 earthquake woke up clearlake residents this morning. a viewer said it felt like the big one. we just checked the usgs website. more than 100 people reported
6:35 am
feeling it. it happened around 4:11 followed by a smaller aftershock. it is 6:34 now. here's gianna with a look at your "timesaver traffic." >> we are starting to get busy out there. they have just turned on the metering lights at the bay bridge toll plaza. you can see in our live shot here that traffic is starting to stack up back to the caltrans parking lot at this point also slight delays off the eastshore freeway. most of mass transit is on time except the capitol corridor. delays for train 518, 22 minutes between martinez and suisun so plan for that. 92 extra volume between 880 and 101 and a broken-down big rig westbound 92 blocking lanes right as you connect to 35. so expect delays there. that's traffic. here's elizabeth. >> thank you. well, it looks like we're off to a dry commute. now, we are dealing with a few low clouds and fog. we just checked in with the folks at sfo. there are delays on arrivals. so if you are picking someone up at the airport low ceiling
6:36 am
so 45 minutes delays at the airport on arrivals. temperatures outside not ability to. that fog and the low clouds keeping a blanket over the bay area so temperatures are on the more mild side today than we have seen the past few days. temperatures mostly in the 40s. a couple 50s in the south bay. for the most part we are dry today. high pressure is the name of the game. you see these rain showers? they're all staying north of the bay area. so it looks like we are staying dry for the next several days. but you may have noticed it may have rained a little in the past few days so these are your rainfall totals for the season. since about july of last year, we are still below average for this time of the year. but it did make a dent in the numbers. you will see we're 49% of normal in san francisco. about a third of normal in san jose. so is there more rain in our seven-day forecast? we'll tell you coming up. a school board in pleasanton will likely decide tonight whether to deploy drug- sniffing dogs on their campus. over the past four years, drug and alcohol suspensions have
6:37 am
increased at three of the high schools especially at foothill high school and now there is a proposal to use dogs for random searches of the parking lots and the physical education look rooms at the school. three other districts in the east bay use dogs for that purpose with good results. oakland may not have to lay off as many people as they previously thought. city leaders propose to hand out just over 100 pink slips and consolidate several departments in an effort to fill the $28 million budget gap following the loss of redevelopment funding from the state. the mayor will present her plan to the city council tomorrow. that's at a special meeting. san jose city leaders may vote today to cut their own pensions to save money. a committee recently approved a proposal to eliminate pension plans for the mayor and city council. pensions have been a hot button issue in budget talks. costs have ballooned into the hundreds of millions of dollars. coming up, mitt romney's
6:38 am
tax returns. they were just released. the criticism he is already facing. >> and the way we watch tv is about to change. we'll check in with brian cooley from cnet about the new trend for 2012. and the market just opened. the early numbers, down a little yesterday after a nice ride last week and looks like we may go two for two on the downside. maybe not. still have time. we'll check in with kcbs moneywatch reporter jason brooks when we come back.
6:39 am
6:40 am
minimum wage. k-c-b-s radio's matt bigler is on the
6:41 am
phone effort. in san jose, there's been a push to increase the minimum wage there. matt bigler is on the phone with details on that effort. good morning. >> good morning. yeah. this is a pretty interesting story coming out of san jose state. students are launching an all- out effort to raise the city's minimum wage by 25% to $10 an hour up from the current $8 mandated by the state. this all started when students in the social action class found out that the city's minimum wage of $8 was lower than the neighboring states of oregon, washington and nevada. so they went to work, doing research, paying for a public opinion p.m. and now they are kicking off a signature-gathering campaign here to put in an initiative on the november ballot. they have submitted the necessary paperwork at city hall and they are planning to launch this in a couple of weeks. they have 180 days to collect nearly 20,000 valid signatures. now, raising the minimum wage
6:42 am
is controversial opposed by local businesses who see it as a job killer. san jose does have a living wage of $13.59 an hour for businesses that are contracted to do work for the city. san francisco's minimum wage is $1 to in24 an hour, the highest in the country do -- san francisco's minimum wage is $10.24 an hour, the highest in the country. >> thank you. president obama will give the state of the union address. the speech will be attended by congresswoman gabrielle giffords who is resigning from her office to concentrate on a recovery from last year' shooting. she will be present tonight. you can see the entire state of the union address tonight at 6:00 on cbs 5 followed by a special edition of cbs 5 eyewitness news at 7:30. we're always on check it out. the republican candidates
6:43 am
running for president clashed in a debate in tampa, florida. finances is the hot topic. this morning, mitt romney released tax returns for 2010 and estimated returns for 2011 showing he made more than $40 million in the past two years. in 2010 he paid a tax rate of 14% since most of his money came from investments. billionaire warren buffett told bloomberg television today that the low rate that romney paid really reflects more poorly on lawmakers in congress than on romney himself. he is just following the rules. last night romney tried to shift attention to newt gingrich's work for freddie mac. >> freddie mac was paying speaker gingrich $1.6 million at the same time freddie mac was costing the people of florida millions upon millions of dollars. >> gingrich did not dispute that dollar amount that he is talking about but he did say that he has never done any lobbying on behalf of clients. and he maintains that.
6:44 am
let's go live right now to okeechobee, florida. there you can see rick santorum a live shot with a meet and greet at a recreation center. >> okeechobee. >> okeechobee. how about traffic, gianna? >> all right. let's head over to the south bay. we have reports of a brand-new accident with injuries. a tree -- a vehicle went down the embankment hit a tree. injuries reported at mt. hamilton road east of quimby. looking good through downtown san jose but extra cars on the road there. along 880/237, traffic good. a little sluggish from zanker -- check that out. looks like it's busier. not too bad just a couple of minutes ago but starting to stack up. delays around zanker, as well. so that may slow you down a bit. also keep in mind on 237 there are new metering lights that
6:45 am
are in effect today. looks like for calaveras and mccarthy so that may slow you down, as well. speaking of delays, westbound bay bridge metering lights are on. you're backed up to the 880 overpass, no delays into san francisco. san mateo bridge continues to be one of our bright spots. no wind advisories. extra volume from 880 to 101, still moving at nice speeds. west not too bad your marin county commute looking good. southbound 101 clear out of marin county towards the golden gate bridge toll plaza. mass transit for the most part is on time but capitol corridor is running about 22 minutes behind for training number 518 so plan for that. that's a look at traffic. here's elizabeth. >> thank you. out the door this morning, you may see it's foggy. we have a few low clouds and high clouds and all kinds of clouds this morning. so no rain in our forecast. so that's what we're dealing
6:46 am
with. that low ceiling we're hearing about delays on arrivals at sfo about 45 minutes. so mostly cloudy out the door all across the coast, bay and inland. temperatures in the 40s. low to upper 40s across the bay area. by this afternoon, we are going to warm things up by a few degrees from yesterday. so definitely milder and the sunshine should make a comeback, as well. we are expecting partly cloudy skies, temperatures going to reach the low 60s in some of our inland spots. so yeah, high pressure is building. it's growing. and it's not going anywhere through the end of the workweek. the low is not getting near the bay area. we have rain showers north of the bay area but for now we are staying dry and once this valley fog in the morning burns off, should be a pretty nice day. pinpoint forecast for later on today, temperatures mostly in the upper 50s to low 60s. you see 62 in mountain view, 59 out in fremont. same thing for your east bay numbers. 58 in pittsburg, antioch, brentwood and north bay numbers, let's see, mostly in the upper 50s.
6:47 am
59 in san rafael and novato. we are staying high and dry the next couple of days. high pressure is not going anywhere. tuesday or wednesday, partly cloudy skies. and then check out friday, saturday, sunday. some of these temperatures are above average for this time of year. we are soaring towards the upper 60s in some of our inland spots. so the only thing we may have to deal with is a little bit of morning and night valley fog, tule fog because the ground is still wet. other than that a nice week shaping up. that's traffic and weather. back to you. >> no complaints. federal reserve begins a two-day meeting in washington, d.c. today. it's the first time fed members will offer their individual views and projections for interest rates and the economy all part of the central bank's plan to be more transparent to the investors. six-figure income fairly common in the south bay. here's jason brooks with kcbs and to tell us why. i think i know why but take it away. >> reporter: fairly obvious. we had a lot of successful tech
6:48 am
